Tom Pennington/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Kan.) — The NASCAR Sprint Cup series heads to Kansas Speedway on Sunday.

Jimmie Johnson leads the standings by 18 points over Kyle Busch.  Gregg Biffle sits in third, 30 points off the pace.

Brad Keselowski is 34 points out after being docked 25 points this week for inspection on his car at Texas Motor Speedway.

“Kansas is a really tough race track to figure out where you need speed,” said Carl Edwards, who sits in fifth.  “This to me would be as big as Daytona, it would be big as the brickyard, and it’s just because it’s so close to home, it’s an awesome race track.”

NASCAR plans to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Green flag for the STP 400 drops at 1 PM Eastern on Sunday.
